The InnoEnergy Entrepreneur Day is an initiative of KIC InnoEnergy and Leuven.Inc.
Did you ever dream of turning your promising energy or cleantech research into business by creating a spin-off company? Or do you want to set up a collaboration or joint technology development project with partners in the energy domain? But how to realise this dream? Who are your first contacts? What are the critical steps and key ingredients for success? How to write your business plan? Which revenue models are possible? How to protect your IP? How to finance your company?
How to make a difference?
KIC InnoEnergy can help you out in these matters. Interested? Come and join us at the InnoEnergy Entrepreneur Day. This event is specifically organised for all masters and PhD students, for post-docs and researchers as well as investors and entrepreneurs, active in the energy area.
